Never Enough Wool
Whew. That had to be the fastest summer that ever
wasn’t that we have ever seen. Seems like just yesterday that school closed for
the summer, Carol was eagerly anticipating a visit from her son and family, and
the resumption of classes was such a l-o-n-g time away. And here we are, at Labour Day Weekend, the
Port Perry Fair is on, and school starts up around here on Tuesday.
What’s new at the wool
shop? We have some lovely new yarns – Liberty
Wool from Classic Elite.
This is a superwash wool in a worsted weight, perfect for warm woolies
in the winter, and quick gift items!
There is a pattern book which offers a selection of projects ranging
from hats to sweaters.
We also brought in a
line called Eco Andean DK Wool from Estelle. This is 100% undyed highland wool, and comes
in four beautiful shades. At 100g/350m
for only $11.00, this may well become your favourite DK wool! Imagine a fair isle sweater in these colours
– beauty AND warmth!
We also brought in
three new colours of Misti Alpaca Handpaint Sock Yarn! These will make fabulous cowls or scarves
for gift items, so better hurry in for best selection.
from Estelle has arrived.
Looking for a chained bulky wool for arm knitting? This is your best option –
it is colourful, lightweight, and soft.
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our

Crochet Baby/Adult Hat
-- September – For that special someone in your life (or yourself!), we have a
cute little hat planned. Class will
meet on Thursday mornings, beginning September 4, from 10-12:00, at a cost of
$20 plus materials.
Japanese Upside Down Knitted Poncho – September – Remember when Barb’s husband brought home a pattern book
from Japan? Barb is decoding the
directions for an adorable lace poncho – but it’s not your 1960’s poncho. Brought into the modern era and knit in DK
weight yarn, this little beauty will be an excellent layering piece for three
seasons of the year! Cost is $20, plus
– October – Our class in October will teach you the technique of double
knitting – which sounds extremely difficult, but is in actuality very doable by
every one. The mittens are totally
reversible, and very warm. These would
make excellent holiday gifts, if one were so inclined. Carol will also start work on a double-knit
vest, while Barb continues work on her double-knit car coat. Come join the fun and learn to double-knit
yourself! Classes are held on Tuesdays,
beginning October 7, from 1-3:00 pm or 7-9:00 pm. Cost: $25, plus
Cowl – November – As
the holiday gift-giving season closes in, our thoughts turn to projects which
can be completed quickly but still look intricate and difficult. This Linen Stitch Cowl is the answer – you
could even make one for yourself if you so desired! There’s plenty of time.
Classes will be held on Tuesdays, beginning November 4, from 1-3:00 pm
or 7-9:00 pm. Cost: $25 plus materials.

pm. Pre-registration is required.
Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale,
and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian
Cardigan on page 104. Carol and
Barb are still working on their cardigans, although both have become distracted
by other pretties. Inquiries as to the
status of these cardigans will help to remind the girls that they need to
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured
